Sixty Years of Photographs : Excerpts From Correspondence, Interviews, and Other DocumentsBook - 1999?
Sixty Years of Photographs, back in print after many years, is one of the most comprehensive surveys of the power and force of a major photographic figure of our time. Before his death in 1976, Strand spent his last days going over his photographic prints and his many books with an eye to the completion of this volume. Because of his insistence on growth and movement toward perfection throughout his career, and to be true to his vision, the editors examined over three thousand photographs, constituting the main body of the work of Strand's lifetime. This volume, which includes an insightful biographical profile by Calvin Tomkins and excerpts from Strand's correspondence, interviews, and other documents, has long been unavailable.
